My anti virus program won't let me upgrade from DXK 13.1.1 to 13.1.3. 
I can upgrade by turning off the AV program temporarily, but as soon as I restore AV protection, the new DXK is unavailable and I have to go back to the earlier version.  Is anyone else experiencing this?

In many AV applications you can set up folders that are excluded from the scan. That could be a solution.

Thanks, I should try that.  However, I've upgraded DXKeeper several times on this computer with the same AV software, with no issues.

The same thing happens to me once in a while with HRD. I think what's going on is that the updated version is so new that sometimes the anti-virus program doesn't have a signature for it, so they flag it as being possibly malicious.

Once I did was OZ8AGB said (exclude the HRD folder) and got the anti-virus program to restore the file, I was back in business. Same should work with DXKeeper.

Tnx, KD2EOM and OZ8AGB.  That did the trick for me once I figured how to use that feature of my AV program.

There were several reports of this behavior on the DXLab Yahoo Group today, Chuck.

Some anti-malware applications have become so sloppy that pro-actively configuring them to consider a new version "safe" has become de rigueur, which of course prevents them from discovering an actual infestation.
